Sunday 20th April 2014
Weather/Conditions: Mega-sunny day, warm, still. Bit hazy for most distant views, but snow spattered Highland hills showing through. Very nice!
Distance/Ascent/Time: 5.4km / 520m / 2h 50m
Accompanying: Tonnes of folk - primarily along with Steve and Jen
We all headed up from the distillery, bypassing Dumgoyne. On the way I broke free, wanting to move quicker, and nipped up to the summit of Dumgoyne, running back down past the scree chute, panting and glad to have done so. I knew there would be no Earl's Seat for the three of us - I might as well get a summit of some sort done!
Everyone eventually took a break up below the top of Garloch Hill, where we had some lunch. But for the three of us, it was time to turn around, and we headed home instead in time to see the family all around for Easter.
